Museum of Non-Visible Art

This is a independent conceptual art project by Praxis, curated by Vallejo Gantner, artistic director of PS122. Praxis is the collaborative art team of Brainard and Delia Carey, and in this project, this museum, James Franco has collaborated with them. This is being produced for kickstarter, which is the platform hosting this project

Praxis has been in the Whitney Museum Biennial and James Franco has exhibited his art work internationally.

The Non-Visible Museum is an extravaganza of imagination, a museum that reminds us that we live in two worlds: the physical world of sight and the non-visible world of thought. Composed entirely of ideas, the Non-Visible Museum redefines the concept of what is real. Although the artworks themselves are not visible, the descriptions open our eyes to a parallel world built of images and words. This world is not visible, but it is real, perhaps more real, in many ways, than the world of matter, and it is also for sale.

Non-visible artwork can be given to another collector, to exhibit it elsewhere, or you can lend it back to Praxis when we take the Non-Visible Museum on tour. As these non-visible works of art are bought, exchanged, and resold, they open our eyes to the unseen universe that exists at every moment, and we can share that universe. It is like finding the code beneath. We exchange ideas and dreams as currency in the New Economy.

In the near future we will invite more artists, writers, and others to contribute works to the Non-Visible Museum so that it can keep expanding.

For now, we want to tour this museum in the U.S. and Europe.
For each exhibition, we will give a tour of the Non-Visible Museum, describing to all those in attendance what they are looking at and imagining. As this tour grows, we will continue to collaborate and add new works.
